About this year’s Virtual Main Event

The Main Event has long been an opportunity for the entire Jewish community in and around Ann Arbor to gather in one room. We hope to recreate that feeling as much as possible in a digital space this year. To do that, the event will take place in multiple digital spaces. All links will be provided via email after you register.

We know you may be attending this year’s Main Event with someone else in your household, and we strongly request you buy a ticket for each person who will attend. This will be an evening of Broadway-caliber entertainment with the goal of supporting Jewish life locally and around the world. Thank you for your partnership.

Event outline

6:30-7:00pm  Schmooze on Zoom

While the featured performers are the reason you might stay, we know one of the reasons you come to the Main Event in the first place is to schmooze! We will utilize Zoom breakout rooms for a half hour of schmoozing before the performance.

During the performance, you may choose to enjoy a dinner catered by Amanda’s Kitchen. The deadline to order dinner was 2/12.

8:00-8:20pm   Live “Talk Back” with Tovah Feldshuh and Ari Axelrod on Zoom

Open to Major Donors and those who purchase a ticket that includes the “talk back.” An additional link will be provided to this exclusive session.
